Considering that I learned about this from a "Bitch Movie" list that included titles like Mean Girls and Clueless, I was not prepared for how dark this movie would turn out to be. But I did end up enjoying how all the female characters were portrayed as much as victims as they were bullies, and how the story was layered.
